Braintree police are searching for a man wearing a New England Patriots shirt who robbed the Eastern Bank branch in Weymouth Landing on Saturday afternoon.
The man told a teller that he had a gun and would shoot her if she did not give him $5,000, police said in a statement released today. The bank is on Commercial Street on the Braintree side of Weymouth Landing.
The suspect was described as a heavy-set white man in his 30s who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and had a gap between his front teeth. He was carrying a bicycle-type helmet and was wearing a long-sleeve shirt underneath his Patriots shirt, grey sweatpants, and black sneakers. He had a beige bandanna on his head and wore black sunglasses.
The man fled with the money and got in a red or maroon Buick Century-type vehicle that was driven by another white man in his late 40s to early 50s with light-brown hair and a mustache. A witness told police that the car’s license plate was green and contained the number 3 in it and the letters “BPH.”
Anyone with any information about either man is asked to call police at 781-794-8762.
